Pallay was a bit of a shady character. It was said that he had Mafia connections. A stock promoter and investor who had changed his name from Abramson, he was often part of George's entourage, someone who arranged the tickets, knew the right bootleggers. He was the friend who would get the girl for George and then get rid of the girl for George. Pallay was singularly devoted to George, and no one had been more vigilant during the final days. Pallay had played a  key role at the hospital during [Gershwin's brain] surgery, having been stationed at a desk just outside the operating theater, along with George's agent, Arthur Lyons. As the operation progressed, the doctors would tell Pallay what was happening, and then he would relay the latest update by telephone to the four family members – Lee and Ira, and Lee's sister Emily Paley and her husband, Lou, who had just arrived – waiting on another floor. At first the news seemed good, and Pallay informed the family that a cyst the size of a grapefruit had been discovered and excised. This seemed to be good news, and the doctors were momentarily optimistic. The news was relayed to the family. Then the surgeons discovered that in fact there remained an embedded tumor. At this point, George's brain was swelling uncontrollably. The outlook was grim. This terrible update was relayed by Pallay to the family."

    Amica Poème Dramatique en deux Actes de Paul Bérel Version Rythmique Française de Paul Collin Version rythmique Italienne de Giovani Targioni-Tozzetti Partition Piano et Chant transcrite par Adriano Ariani... Edizione Italiana. [Piano-vocal score] by MASCAGNI, Pietro 1863-1945

    Paris: Choudens [PN A.C. 13,315], 1905. Probable First Edition of the first Italian version. Amica, to a libretto by French publisher Paul de Choudens (Bérel was a pseudonym), was first performed in Monte Carlo at the Théâtre du Casino on March 16, 1905, and was an immediate success. The Italian premiere (with an Italian libretto by Mascagni's close collaborator, Giovanni Targioni-Tozzetti) took place on May 13, 1905, with Riccardo Stracciari (1875-1955) as Rinaldo. Mascagni conducted both performances. It was the composer's only opera with a French libretto. "Stracciari's mellow, velvety voice, coloured and resonant over its whole range, with an extended and penetrating upper register, made him, between 1905 and 1915, the rival of Titta Ruffo and Pasquale Amato. His repertory included all the great baritone roles and among the dramatic parts he preferred those in Il trovatore, Rigoletto and Aida. But, thanks to a technique characteristic of the best traditions of the 19th century, he excelled in works which allowed him to display his courtly enunciation, smooth singing, elegant phrasing and musical delicacy." Rodolfo Celletti in Grove Music Online. A notable association copy.. Folio. Half textured maroon cloth with textured maroon cloth boards, titling gilt to spine, with original publisher's upper wrapper with an illustration after an etching by [?]R. Aguet printed by Ch.
